Floppyshop - Public Domain

With almost 3000 disks, Floppyshop is perhaps the biggest public domain series for the Atari ST. Fortunately, the whole collection has been preserved on CD and is available on the Internet. Unlike the popular German series, Floppyshop combined a category with a numbering scheme. The „missing“ numbers in each category are just used in another category.

  • Picworks
    You can load and save pictures in any recognised format and do some amazing things to them. Use this package for those special effects not available in your own art package. This version is mono only.
  • The ArtiST
    A mono art package. It is compatible with Degas but more advanced in certain areas, although not all.
  • Mono-Emulator
    One of the few problems with the ST is it's inability to display all three graphics modes on a normal monitor or TV. The High resolution monochrome display usually needs a special monitor. Some software, such as 'Signum' and 'PCB Designer' only works in monochrome mode, so if you do not a have the monitor then you can not use the software. This small program provides a solution to this. The Mono Emulator make the ST run in mono mode, but provide a picture which is suitable for a normal monitor or TV.

  • The SPX Editor 1.4
    This disk contains all you need to create your own Spectrum 512 extended format pictures. You can combine up to 10 Spectrum 512 screens into one file or piece together files from the PC or the Amiga which are larger than the ST's physical screen depth. For example, an Amiga high res picture of 320x400 can be saved on the Amiga as two 320x200 screens, ported across to the ST, imported into Spectrum 512, re-saved as two SPC files and joined back together as a single SPX file. This program is most useful to users who also own Amigas or PCs. A number of sample SPC files are provided for you to play around with. This latest version is fully compatible with Gizmo's SPX format and the shower program has been updated to allow Ice packed or Atomik packed screens to be viewed. Another program on disk allows you to split large GIF and IFF files into 320x200 chunks to be spliced together in the SPX creator. Also on disk are numerous completed SPX files created by Radical Systems.

It supports NEO and Degas (PI? and PC?) formats and allows pictures to be loaded into a different resolution or into a package which does not support the relevant format (e.g. compressed Degas files). You can also double-click any Degas or Neo file of any resolution and show or print it from the Desktop.
  • Fractgen 1.0
    Generates fractal graphics using a number of selected algorithms applied to any of the six available fractal types. You can zoom in to an almost infinite degree. It recalculates the zoomed area by representing it in a blockish fashion like an art package does, then smoothing it off using your chosen algorithm. The results are very detailed and once again the only criticism is the inability to save in a sensible format. A maths coprocessor can be used to speed things up even further.
  • Chaos Calc 2.35
    A rather fast Mandelbrot generator. This one lets you zoom almost into infinity. Although CC2 is powerful as it stands, registered users get a number of extras. The program is GEM based and the instructions are very straightforward. A dozen pre-defined Mandelbrot sets are included on disk.
  • WATCH-IT 1.0A
    WATCH-IT is a picture viewer for Atari ST/STE/TT/Falcon030 computers. It was planned as a viewer for the new Falcon computer only, supporting the 256-colour-resolution and the truecolour-resolution, but as it is a plain GEM-program, you can also start it on the "old" Ataris as well. WATCH-IT runs on all memory-configurations, but 512 KByte may be too small for big pictures.
  • A Fractal Journey into Outer Space
    This fractal generator supports both Mandelbrot and Julia sets. It creates a full screen fractal in just a few seconds and is capable of generating animations. 24-bit true colour RAW files can be created. These take ages to create and are written to disk since your ST can't display them. They are intended for use with PhotoChrome on ART.3303.

Like v2.2, this version features hundreds of scenes for you to render yourself, all grouped according to your level of experience. The on-disk manual's huge, running to over 800K and is very well written, starting out with an easy to understand introduction to ray tracing, then moving progressively to the more advanced stuff. It also includes several detailed tutorials, all aimed at different ability levels.

  • Looker
    Described as an image processing program, it is primarily concerned with the conversion of colour images to monochrome or greys by use of dithering and half-toning, both of which allow extensive user control over their parameters. You can lighten or darken a picture, negate it or access the colour values to alter the converted image. Looker loads PI1, PI3 and DTH formats and saves as PI3 and DTH. Looker is well documented but entirely command driven, therefore not really user friendly.
  • Polystar (Mono)
    Originally designed to create multi-pointed stars for DTP work, Polystar has evolved into a drawing program in its own right. It offers such unusual tools as star, petals and spiral as well as implementing many of the usual ones. Polystar is a fun program to use, offering several new features over those expected from this type of package. It loads and saves Degas format pictures.
  • Rotation 1.0

  • Pulser
    A drawing package with a difference. It allows you to create the illusion of movement by clever use of colour cycling. Although this in itself is not a new concept, what makes Pulser unique is that you can have colour cycling switched on whilst drawing and this applies not only to freehand drawing but to shapes as well. In addition, you can specify the direction and speed of the cycling. A number of standard tools such as freehand, circle, box, lines and rays are also included. Pulser allows you to load and save Degas images as well as its own format (which stores all the colour cycling info). Several example pictures are supplied on disk.

  • Imagelab (English) 2.1
    A Freeware greyscale image processing package with a few nice touches. Features include scaling, contrast/brightness adjust, linear distribution, equal distribution, median filter, dilation, erosion, edge enhancement and the ability to display any of an image's 8 bitplanes. An invaluable feature is the ability to design your own filters and over 20 of these are supplied on disk. A number of greyscale adjustment filters are also supplied. Blocks may be cut and pasted between images and two images can be merged together to create some interesting effects. The ability to convert mono IMGs into true greyscale images is most helpful for those of you who do not have greyscale scanners. Imagelab is restricted to loading its own B_W format, AIM format or uncompressed IFFs but external conversion utilities allow GIF, TIFF, Degas and IMG format to be converted to B_W and vice versa. Although the program runs in mono, all work is actually performed in 256 greyscale mode.

Images can be resaved in IMG, TIFF, IFF or raw screendump formats. What makes IMCON score over more fully featured packages like GEM-View is its ability to load the picture into memory rather than display it on screen, thus avoiding the problems of colour reduction in lower resolutions. Having said that, you can display the image on screen if you want. IMCON runs on any Atari and is compatible with most graphic cards.
  • Pixikrome
    An image processing package written in STOS! You can load pictures in Spectrum 512, RAW (QRT Raytrace), Degas, NEO, NeoChrome Master, Canvas, Art Director, IFF, IMG and TNY formats amongst others or digitise into the program directly using Vidi ST. Special effects include mosaic, inverse, shatter, sinewave, tanwave, flip and mirror. The colour intensities of RAW images can be adjusted for the different red, green and blue components. A number of filters such as min, max, mean, median and blur are also included. Although True Colour pictures are worked in in their their separate RGB parts, there is a preview mode which gives you an idea of what the adjusted picture will look like. Your completed masterpiece will have to be viewed using Photochrome or Raw2Spec. Needs 1 Meg, Colour ONLY.
  • MOV-POV 2.86
    GEM based shell for use with POV Raytrace. What makes this shell different is that it can be set to render several scripts, one after the other, and it can also generate animations from POV scripts.

    A collection of utilities for analysing and creating MPEG animations, all held together in a nice friendly GEM based shell. MPEG is the animator's equivalent of JPEG. It is a lossy compression method but first generation MPEGs are usually of a high enough quality to deceive the human eye into thinking that they are the same as the original. The loss in quality is offset by the fact that files are typically compressed to around 10% or less of their original size. MPEG Fever allows you to create your own MPEGs from a set of sequentially numbered TGA files (other more obscure formats are also supported) or extract the individual frames from an existing MPEG animation. You can also extract specified sections of the animation to its own MPEG file or join two animations together. A large amount of analysis of MPEGs is also supported for the technically minded. All other functions are fully operational. Needs at least 1 Mb, more for processing large files. Needs to be run in ST high resolution or better. Although you can work on MPEG files in mono, you cannot view the animations on an ST unless you have a graphics card.

  • The Degas Art Presentation
    A taster from Floppyshop's DegasArt graphics tutorial. This disk contains over 40 impressive hand drawn images by the above named graphic artists. Some are from the DegasArt package itself, others have never been seen before. Nicely presented in a slideshow with an accompanying text file giving some background on each image. Don't misunderstand, this is not a tutorial disk, you'll have to buy the full three disk set for that. Instead it's a collection of superb original artwork with a smattering of hints and tips for the budding computer artist.

  • M&E Modules
    An impressive collection of graphics based modules created by Parx, a French company responsible for a number of Atari based products. These must be installed prior to use and are common to all applications (eg; BV4, Piccolo, D2M, Diapo etc), using M&E modules, so you need only have one set of modules installed on your system. They handle graphic cards, memory management, intelligent colour reduction, generation of textures, support for GDOS/NVDI printing, the loading of over 40 and saving of over 30 different file types (all common Atari formats as well as Photo CD, TIFF, GIF etc) and digitising directly into any supporting program using Vidi ST and others. There's even a module which lets you output photographic quality images to the Fargo FotoFun. M&E modules (and programs which use them) are most usable if you have two floppy drives or a hard drive.

  • Piccolo (Bayle) 1.00
    A cut down version of Parx's D2M which is designed to demonstrate the use of their M&E modular system. It lacks a decent set of tools but does load and save in a variety of formats using the Parx M&E modules. A small selection of these modules are supplied and a fuller distribution version of them is available on ART.5895. Using the M&E modules you can input images directly from Vidi-ST, select from a variety of colour reduction methods to obtain best results, and apply various effects to your images. With the full version of the M&E modules, the functionality of this package is further extended.

  • EB Modelleur 2.75A
    A universal 3D modeller for use with several different raytracing packages. It imports scripts from POV, CLOE  and  3D Studio (on the PC).  The ability to export files  in  anything other than EB-Model's own format is reserved for registered users.  EB-Model simplifies  the  process of setting up cameras and lighting for  your  scene with the use of movable objects in a GEM window rather than the hit or  miss approach  of  entering  the data by hand  into  script  files.  The  program includes precalculated objects (segments,  boxes,  prisms,  tubes,  spheres, pyramids, cones and more) and there's a library feature which lets you store copies  of your own objects for use in other scenes.  You can even spin  and extrude shapes and create fractal landscapes. Your creation can of course be viewed from different elevations.  The program uses the 'modern face of GEM'with colour icons,  movable windows,  3D interface and so forth (all subject to which machine it's running on).  It is compatible with all Atari machines and  multi-tasking friendly.

  • 3DP
    Allows you to quickly an easily create 3D models for use with POV Raytracer v2. You can adjust the viewing angle and the position of the camera to suit. The resultant image is displayed in its own window as a wireframe graphic and can be saved as an object or output as a POV script file ready to be cut and pasted into your main script. Several example objects are supplied as well as POV scripts of these. Easy to use if you know the basics of raytracing but unfortunately the program and all docs are in French.

  • GEM2PS 6.1
    Converts GEM Metafiles into PostScript or EPS format for output to PostScript devices. It is also possible to view the structure of the GEM file and to specify positioning on the page for the printing of its PostScript counterpart. Text can also be used but you are restricted to using the Helvetica font.
  • Reduct TGA 2.0
    Lets you resize any 24-bit or 8-bit (Type 2 or 3) TGA image by typing in a percentage (for each axis) or the exact dimensions (in pixels) required.
  • xCOPY pOV 0.9
    Allows you to make copies of objects created for use with Persistence Of Vision Raytracer v2. Includes very detailed instructions but unfortunately they are in French.
  • Rotation TGA 1.0
    Rotates an 8-bit or 24-bit (Type 2 or 3) TGA by a specified number of degrees. The image's size is increased to avoid cropping. It can be displayed on a black background or using a tiled effect with multiple copies of the image being used as the background to give a 3D effect.
  • Meta-Bit 1.1d
    With META-BIT, GEM standard vector graphics (metafiles, *.GEM) can be edited within certain limits and then saved as raster graphics of any size. The following formats are available: GEM-VDI IMG, TIFF, ZSoft PCX, Screen (PIC), Degas monochrome uncompressed, PaintShop Compressed and STAD-PAC.
  • Bordure
    Creates a border (within the image's original boundaries) of the size and colour you specify around any 8-bit or 24-bit (Type 2 or 3) TGA image. You can even allow the image to gradually fade into the border and specify settings for this too! Docs in French but easy to figure out.
  • CyberSculpt Extrude Autotracer
    Converts an uncompressed Degas image into an extrude template file which is then loaded into CyberSculpt to create 3D objects. Works better with some images than others but it does offer a simple solution to the problem with virtually no user intervention.
  • 3-D Object Colorizer 2.0
    3-D Object Colorizer is a utility which allows one to recolor individual faces of a CAD-3D v2.0 three dimensional object. Individual objects may be viewed in solid form from any camera angle. Changing a face's color is then as simple as clicking the mouse on the face you wish to change. Objects may then be resaved in CAD-3D file format.

  • Anonymous Gif Animation Tool (AGATe) 1.2
    A useful program which takes a 256 colour FLC file and converts it to an GIF animation for use on the WWW. It attempts to save only the animated area rather than the full 640x480 screen. Lots of option allow transparency, interlace and other attributes to be specified.
  • DEMO RWI
    A collection of demo modules for use with packages which support Parx Software's M&E modules (BV4, Picolo and others). The full versions of these modules are commercially available from Parx. They include printer drivers for the Canon BJC-4000 and BJC-70, HP Deskjet 500C and 550C, Epson Stylus Colour, and import modules for the Paragon Mustek M1200D3P, M600D3P, M600DSP, M600S2D flatbed scanners and the Vidi ST digitiser in 256 colours or True Colour (Falcon only). Just drop them into the appropriate folders inside your PARX.SYS folder and they are ready for use.
  • IFX Matrix
    Two new special effects modules for use with packages which support Parx Software's M&E modules. These are demo versions which perform convolutions (on True Colour images) based on a 3x3 matrix. Being demos, you cannot save the resulting images. One version is for use on the Falcon, the other runs on any Atari.

  • Eureka 2.12
    A combined statistical analysis/3D modelling package. You need to understand mathematical functions to O Grade/Standard Grade/GCSE level at a minimum in order to make use of this program. You start out by creating a graph using one of the supported formulae or the Julia or Mandelbrot fractal sets, then map your graph onto one of the supplied 3D surfaces. Your creations can also be made into 3D animations. In addition, Eureka can also import images and animations created using the Persistence Of Vision raytracer.
  • MP_STE 2.78
    The ST conversion of the Falcon program MPlayer. Lets you play Quick Time, AVI, FLI, FLC, FLH, SEQ, PI1+DLT and FLM animations on any ST. The STE in the name signifies that you will get stereo sound (where appropriate) if running on an STE. Mono sound is supported on pre-STE machines. It also allows you to create Quick Time, AVI and FLM animations on your ST as well as animated GIFs for the Web.
  • Alvi 0.05beta
    A JPEG viewer. Despite what the docs say, you must run ALVI from the Desktop (i.e. drag & drop etc don't work). The current version runs in any resolution but only displays the image in monochrome. Image can be displayed at various zoom levels. Its main claim to fame is its speed at loading.
Floppyshop Art 6158
  • GFORGE 1.2
    Generates a landscape texture using a process known as "random fractal forgery". The generated landscapes are very realistic in appearance, yet calculated from a simple algorythm. The output files are in 24-bit TGA or PNG format and may be used as standalone files or as backgrounds for POV scenes. A large amount of control is possible when creating these landscapes and the doc is very detailed. The program can hardly be described as user- friendly but the results can be impressive to say the least.
  • GrafTool V4/2/96
    Viewer for graphics and animations with image editing functions, creation of overview images. Also runs on/with TT, Falcon, MultiTOS, MagiC and graphics cards.
  • RIM Fractales & Rosaces
    Four fractal generating modules for use with any program which supports Parx's M&E modules. They allow you to create fractals using the Mandelbrot, Julia, Octo, Barnsley and Phoenix sets. The less common Newton-Raphson method is also supported as is a new method which generates images which look like ceiling roses! The demo versions only create fixed resolution images, use a lower level of detail and are much slower than the full versions which may be obtained from the author. Docs in English and French.
Floppyshop Art 6205
  • MORPHing 1.05
    As the name suggests, this programs lets you morph one image into another by generating the in between frames and creating an animation. You can specify how many frames should be generated, the more frames, the longer it takes to generate and the more memory/disk space is needed. Having said that, more frames results in smoother animations. It uses a different method to Apex Media, employing the use of a user-defined grid to control the process. The only limitations seems to be that it only works with 24-bit TGA images and it's very slow. Runs in low resolution.
  • Grafix Art
    Grafix Art is an art package which was originally written to be included with our Grafix The Easy Way art tutor. Written completely in STOS basic and contains the usual features found in an art package.

  • Meta4
    This ACC acts as a metamorphic animator for use with CyberSculpt. Very little documentation, but should make sense to CyberSculpt users. Please note, this ACC does absolutely nothing unless CyberSculpt is currently loaded.
  • Big E (POV Script)
    All the files you need to render the Starship USS Enterprise NCC-1701-A using POV Raytrace v1.00. An impressive scene which contains textures with up to ten layers! Likely to take a day or two to render but should be well worth the wait! The scripts will need a bit of work to alter them for use with a later version of POV.
  • Animdat
    ANIMDAT reads an animation source file and uses it to generate scene files for DKB or POV Raytrace.
  • AnimFLI
    ANIMFLI takes images generated by the quantisation programs and builds them into an FLI animation (at a size of 320x200 only).
  • PVQUANT 1.60
    A collection of programs for use with DKB Raytrace or POV Raytracer. The quantisation programs take a 24-bit TGA image and reduce it to 16 or 256 colours using the Octree or Heckbert colour reduction methods.
  • Texty
    An art package which has one aim, to handle fonts! It comes supplied with 49 fonts in with character sizes varying from 6*6 pixels to 32*32 pixels. You can load up a PI1 or NEO image, type a line of text in your favourite font and apply various attributes such as shade, underline and inverse to it. It may be moved around prior to pasting down and the text may be pasted down in x- ray or overlay mode
  • MUTA
